      No it won’t but you can pick them up for 10 or less on eBay, or you could get a complete HD box with built in WiFi for not much more than that.

      Technically couldn't you use any Ethernet from any booster and connect to the back of HD box? It would not have to be a Sky Connector. If you had a long enough Ethernet lead you could go direct from back of Hub to back of Sky box.
      My Hub is one of the new Q hubs which is excellent compared to the old black stand up hub.
      (Come on folks,let's have some constructive answers,I have searched the web for this to NO avail.

      You have the equipment.
      Have you tried to do as you suggest?
      What were your findings?

      Yes you can run a cable from the Sky box to the router/hub but you gave the impression that you wanted to use WiFi.
